Today third-party developers had a lot of reveals and a relevant release to share for Microsoft Flight Simulator add-ons.
First of all, we get the reveal of the Freedom Fox by Parallel 42.
It’s being created in collaboration with Trent Palmer, and it’s currently in testing.
Next is an announcement from Gate15 Scenery, which is working on Nanki–Shirahama Airport (RJBD) in Japan.
It serves a popular holiday destination with three Japan Airlines flights a day from Tokyo Haneda airport. It’s a small but very scenic airport.
Unfortunately, there are no images yet, so we’ll have to wait for the next reveal.
